Stoll reports the Stoll-knit report2 management tool gives users the ability to control and
manage a group of knitting machines in a fast, efficient and flexible manner using a smart phone or
tablet device on the plant floor. Order management software allows the operator to send immediate
orders to machinery.
Stoll’s established M1plus is a component of the Design Software solutions series of products
